  • Great experience. First of all take a half-day time to visit. You have to purchase ticket to enter. A bit long walk from entrance to light house. Just outside the entrance don’t miss the waiting place to take some beautiful photos, a boat is there. Guide was no nice and friendly, love to hear from her. Sorry, I have forgot her name. It’s bit tricky to go up with infant but amazing. On the left of the entrance take the path to walk towards the whale watching bay but a long walk , so better prepare ahead. No entry fees on that. Don’t miss the end loop of the car park towards the end, stop by and enjoy the view. Have fun.
  • We actually did a tour of the lighthouse. We have never been inside the lighthouse before and was good to know the details and history of how the lighthouse operated. Our tour guide was exceptional. He was knowledgeable not only about the lighthouse and its history but also the surrounding area. He was so helpful and took photos of us as well as answered all our questions. Tip, if you visit the caves first you can purchase a discounted ticket for the lighthouse tour at the caves reception.
  • We really enjoyed seeing the lighthouse and the surrounding view. The are it's maintained quite well. We were a little shocked you need to pay to walk up to the lighthouse, a $5 entry fee and it is closing at 3pm, due to covid. I have never had to pay to look at the outside of a lighthouse before. As we had driven there and it was a bit of a drive we paid, spent a few mins walking around, enjoying the sights and left. The area is well maintained, so at least entry fee is put to use. The viewing platform is massive and the view is quite extensive! Well worth visiting, just be aware there is a fee and they are closing early at the moment. 4 stars due to the fee.
  • This is not open to public and have to purchase tickets To visit. It's an amazing view from up there and I really enjoyed it. I recommend purchasing tickets in advance. My tour guide was Faye and I think she did a great job
  • If you're interested in learning more about the history of the lighthouse, this tour is for you. Our tour guide, Paul was fantastic, he shared some great information and it was very enjoyable.
